Goal: Establish a new support group in your area if it is underserved and to sustain the groups that already take place.
NAMI Connection facilitators are trained NAMI leaders who facilitate weekly 90-minute Recovery Support Group meetings. They play an important role in ensuring that all participants feel welcomed and supported. NAMI facilitators are uniquely qualified to lead support groups because they are going through their own recovery process. They empathize with and encourage those who are just beginning the journey to a renewed life. A NAMI facilitator ensures that the group shares responsibility for maintaining guidelines, sustains clear participant boundaries, clarifies goals, and reinforces communication skills that encourage group participation.
Who Should Attend: Individuals who have personal experience with mental health challenges and have reached a comfortable place in recovery. Participants should have attended the Connection Support Group meetings and agree to adhere to the NAMI Connection Support Group model.
Facilitators needed: Northern, Central, Southern
